If you are looking to free yourself from glasses or contacts, Insight Eye Center offers LASIK for vision correction. Our Board Certified Ophthalmologist, Dr. Michael Rom, has performed thousands of LASIK procedures for patients in the Cleveland area. We encourage our patients to learn more about the procedure prior to scheduling a consultation. During an evaluation, you will have the opportunity to talk to the doctor and ask any questions you may have before deciding to move forward.
What is LASIK?
LASIK is an acronym for Laser-Assisted in-situ Keratomileusis, and it is the world’s most popular laser vision correction procedure. It is a safe, effective procedure that provides immediate results. LASIK has helped millions of people see clearly independent of glasses or contact lenses, and it makes it possible to resume a more active lifestyle.
LASIK eye surgery is used to correct refractive errors. The treatment reshapes the cornea by removing a predetermined amount of corneal tissue based on the individual’s unique treatment plan. This reshaping of the cornea improves the eye’s focusing power and enhances patients’ visual acuity.

Choose Dr. Rom As Your LASIK Surgeon
“My eye doctor found cataracts on both my eyes and referred me to Dr. Rom. I am so grateful to Dr. Rom for his expertise and dedication concerning my eyesight. He removed the cataracts and gave me LASIK vision correction. I had no pain and have 20/20 vision for the first time in 45 years!” – G.G.

Can Everyone Have LASIK?
No, about 65% to 80% of patients are good LASIK candidates. Some practices will offer a second opinion on what “good candidacy” is, and will claim that 90% of people are “great candidates”, but we always err on the side of caution. We aren’t willing to perform LASIK on patients with contraindications just to make a quick buck, because we really do have our patients’ best interests in mind.
If you’re over the age of 18 and have nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, you may be a good candidate for LASIK. Ideal candidates are those who have:
- No health issues that would affect the eyes.
- No active eye conditions that may impact healing.
- A stable vision prescription for at least one year.
- An understanding and agree to the expected outcome.
To find out more about LASIK and if you are a good candidate, schedule a free evaluation at Insight Eye Center. If you are not a candidate for LASIK, you may be a good candidate for other vision correction procedures including PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy).
How Will My Vision Be After Laser Vision Correction?
In FDA clinical trials, the vast majority of patients see 20/20 or better after LASIK – in fact, more than half experience vision that is 20/16 or better afterward.
How Much Does LASIK Cost?
The cost of LASIK varies from practice to practice, and it varies by a lot. Your typical LASIK “mill” wherein low-experience surgeons are brought in to perform multiple surgeries in one heavy day can have prices that we’ve seen as low as $299 per eye. Compare that to the other extreme, where some surgeons charge close to $10,000 for bilateral procedures. These variations are predicated on differences in surgeon experience, technology, location, overhead, and many other factors.
At Insight Eye Center, our price is very reasonable, all things considered, but the price does vary from patient-to-patient based on factors that are best left discussed with Dr. Rom or our staff. We do offer 0% financing to patients through CareCredit for all our procedures.
